Does anyone have a tip for easily removing the little bitty pieces from the insides of these cupcake wrappers? I just bought this cartridge, and I was messing around with it. Specifically, I was cutting out the first image, the butterfly wrapper. There are TONS of tiny little pieces inside the butterfly wings, etc. Sometimes the punches may stay on a sticky mat, but then I usually just take a stylus point and poke the pieces out. It works fine, but it's incredibly tedious. If I was making any number of these specifically for something, I would have to start months in advance just so I could get all the pieces out...LOL So, I thought I would put it out there to see if anyone found a neat little trick that might work niftily...:) Thanks so much,

Sorry I can't help. I just bought this cart and am anxious to use it for a wedding I am doing.

I just had a thought about this.

I have never tried this, but it makes sense to me: How about brayering over those little areas (with tip of bone card or something like that) just before releasing the whole page up. It seems to me it might help. I think I'll try it tomorrow.

this isn't a tip really ... but I use my Tweezer Bees ... poke into the hole with the tip, then pluck out the tiny piece with the tweezers from the back side. It takes a bit of time, but it works.
